Done in black and fading white, the cover gives us a glimpse of the timeline when the story of an Indian Cinderella is set. Beautiful and captivating, it takes us back to the era of black and white movies which are till date loved for their lyrical melodies and graceful heroines.


Where do I begin, and where do I end? That’s the dilemma I’m facing at the moment. Hats off to you Queen of Romance Sundari Venkatraman, you’ve once again proved that a light romance can not only turn out to be a page turner, very much like a racy thriller, but also linger on in the reader’s mind till long, long after the last word is read. ?? ‘Her Prince Charming’ deals with a story that has conflicting emotions like love, passion, hate and anger in a manner that’s bound to captivate the romantic at heart.

Simple yet executed with skill and aplomb, Her Prince Charming scores a perfect five on all counts. While the plot is interesting, characterization another important aspect that tests an author’s prowess, turns out to be flawless. The good, the bad and the so-so aspects of each character figuring in the story are presented adeptly leaving no room for complaint. One can easily relate to each one of them, their thought process, and predict what to expect next. Yes, in a thriller this aspect could prove the undoing of a story, but here in a romance this lends a ray of hope to the reader who looks forward to a happy ending.


A simple, yet thrilling read, this one will leave you relaxed on a tiring summer noon when temperatures tend to peak. It’s also a read I’d recommend to anyone feeling low on account of an illness. It will buoy up your flagging spirits just like it did mine. ??
